Circus, Family, Theatre

FLOOD is a watery acrobatic adventure that makes a splash (literally). 


It’s 2030, the world’s oceans have become volatile, dangerous and unable to sustain life. 

3 strangers meet on the high seas. A storm is coming.  FLOOD is a new, interactive outdoor spectacle. Using circus, music and acrobatics, FLOOD takes you on an epic adventure to understand how our coastline and communities have become ‘seasick’. Standing under your own personalised ‘sound umbrella’, FLOOD will take you far beyond your front door and into the eye of the storm. FLOOD is watery acrobatic adventure that makes a splash (literally).  

Flood is inspired by an imaginary conversation between the UK coastal communities and the world’s oceans as both are feeling ‘seasick’.  Content created from hours of conversations with communities across the UK.  FLOOD is fully BSL integrated and used dynamic movement and acrobatics, immersive sound umbrella’s and a splashing set which helps create in immersive and fun audience experience.
